This image represents a milestone for the InstaFame Phantom Art Project and the New York Graffiti movement in general.  “Graffiti had undergone a genocide in the New York subway system”, according to Nic 707, “an abolishment so complete that the subway system seemed antiseptic, sterile.”  In 2009, Nic 707 began the IFPA project to counter this devastation by putting small groups of images in various train cars.  Each car became a mobile gallery, bringing NY graffiti back to the central locus for the entire urban art movement.  The images themselves are removable, so the negative aspect of the art form was no longer an issue.  “Centennial” marks the 100th IFPA piece placed on the NY subway system, which traveled on the IRT 6 train on August 12th, 2010.
